The Monsters On The Move Foundation was created to provide aspiring, underprivileged dancers the financial support necessary to pursue a quality dance education and fulfill their artistic goals. Scholarship funds will be used to assist in paying for dance education at accredited schools, organizations or institutions. The creators of MOVE mandate that scholarship recipients "Pay It Forward” by giving back to their school, church or community. The appropriate "giving back" should mirror the good intentions bestowed by the organization.
In 2011, MOVE awarded over $20,000 in financial aid scholarships to 14 needy individuals throughout the United States to continue or pursue a dance education. With an aggressive fundraising goal of $100,000 in 2012, the foundation was thrilled for the opportunity to work with the incomparable Jabbawockeez Crew, who currently headline the entertainment at Las Vegas’ Monte Carlo Hotel.
MOVE organizers worked with The Jabbawockeez in 2008 when they performed at Walt Disney World’s Grad Night event for thousands of high school seniors. “The Jabbawockeez are incredible performers and teachers and we’re honored to have this opportunity to work with them to help support other aspiring dancers,” said MOVE Chairman Andy Funk.
The Jabbawockeez Experience will take place March 10-11, 2012 at the Alexis Park Resort in Las Vegas. The event will feature two days of dance classes with The Jabbawockeez and a host of celebrity guest choreographers including Emmy-Award winning choreographers Tabitha & Napoleon Dumo, world-renowned and longtime Justin Timberlake choreographer, Marty Kudelka and more. The weekend event also features a freestyle session, question & answer session, photos & autographs and most importantly, a ticket to the Jabbawockeez’ popular show MUS.I.C.
